We read Freight Train and discussed positional words. I gave the students colored trains and they ordered themselves by my instructions using ordinal numbers and positional words. Then I gave each student their own paper trains and they glued them in any order they wanted. I made a recording sheet for the students to fill in to tell where they glued their trains using ordinal numbers and positional words. They did a great job identifying which train was first, last and fourth and before and after.
